(Feb. 22, 2011)--A UTSA Downtown Campus lighting upgrade project, a visible commitment to campus security, is complete. The university-wide project designed with energy-efficient lighting was an effort initiated by students, faculty and staff who wanted to improve pedestrian security and overall campus safety.

For their work on the project, thanks go to Thomas Watson, John Saldana, Joe Rubio and Natividad Sandoval of the facilities staff and Geoffrey Merritt of the UTSA Police Department.

At the Downtown Campus, lighting was improved in these areas:

  • Monterey Building parking lot
  • Downtown Campus breezeways
  • Bill Miller Plaza

Completed lighting improvement projects at the Main Campus include:

  • Physical Education Building
  • Sombrilla Plaza
  • John Peace Library walkways near the flagpoles
  • Chaparral Village walkway near the track and parking lot 1B
  • Parking lot 12 (near baseball field), lot 12A (Sam Barshop Boulevard) and lot 4 (across from Business Building)
  • Sculpture and Ceramics Studio

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
